Between June and August of this year, the Stuttgart Directorate of Emergency Services Vehicle Registration Office on Panzer Kaserne expects more than 2,000 privately owned vehicle owners will need to renew their registration.

Because this timeframe also coincides with the peak Permanent Change of Station (PCS) season, customers are urged to check their registration expiration dates now and make appointments as early as 75 days in advance of their renewal date. Renewing early will not change the date of the vehicle’s original registration date.

The garrison encourages advance planning for all-important services like vehicle registration, etc. Appointments can be made on the USAG Stuttgart mobile app: click “Appointments” or visit
